Frequently asked questions

How do you compare these prices?
When a user contributes prices for a city, we keep track of that data for our city cost of living comparison section of the site. To allow users to compare countries, however, we aggregate all of the city-level data for each country. This allows us to create an average cost of living index for each country.
Is this data accurate?
Cost of living prices at the country level is based on the average of all of the cities within that country. In order to see more accurate comparison, we suggest you compare cities instead.
